3 months after the release of the OnePlus 9RT, the less expensive flagship is set to make its first appearance outside of China. OnePlus India these days sent out invitations for a digital launch event scheduled for January 14, where the agency will formally release the OnePlus 9RT in the United States.
For the ones unaware, the OnePlus smartphone is the simplest “T” collection phone that OnePlus announced in 2021, having decided towards launching the OnePlus 9T final 12 months. Curiously, the 9RT is a relative of a successor to the OnePlus 9R — a low-cost flagship from the business enterprise that first launched in India along with its pricier nine series siblings.
Even though the OnePlus 9RT sits a notch under the OnePlus nine and the OnePlus 9Pro inside the hierarchy, its miles are still a flagship-magnificence tool in its very own right. A cellphone receives the identical chip as its pricier siblings — the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 — and gives up to 256GB storage and 12GB of RAM at the top editions.
Lacking Hasselblad branding, the rear-facing triple-camera array at the OnePlus 9RT consists of a 50MP primary camera, a 16MP extremely-wide digicam, and a frivolous 2MP depth sensor — all without an OIS (Optical photo Stabilization). The front-facing camera uses a 16MP sensor housed inside a hollow-punch cutout.
One area wherein OnePlus hasn’t reduced corners on the OnePlus 9RT is the screen, which is a 6.62-inch AMOLED with FHD+ resolution, support for a 120Hz refresh rate, and HDR10+ compatibility. And sure, the charging speeds are flagship-grade, too, with the 4,500 mAh battery supporting 65-watt fast charging with the supplied charger-cable combo.
In China, the OnePlus 9RT launched with Android 11, and this is doubtless the case when it gets to India later this month. In China, the OnePlus 9RT retails for 3299 yuan ($520) for the bottom version, going up to 3799 yuan ($600) for the top/upper version.
The India launch additionally opens the opportunity of the OnePlus 9RT getting an excellent broader launch in chosen European markets, even though OnePlus has yet to officially speak about such an eventuality.
